The Shadow Doctor

By Adrian Plass

  • Hardback
  • £14.99

In this new novel Adrian Plass, bestselling author of the Sacred Diary series, explores what might happen if you could book an appointment with a doctor who could help you with your deepest spiritual wounds, not just a headache.

The Shadow Doctor isn't your usual kind of doctor. Sure, you can bring him your problems - but the chances are his solutions will blow your mind. This man can see into your soul, and the cures he prescribes don't come from the pharmacy. If you have fears you just cannot face, wounds you can't even bear to remember - if you've been abused, ignored, damaged by all life throws at you - the Shadow Doctor is here to help.

But the Shadow Doctor has shades of his own, and the work of helping others may be the only thing keeping him afloat. Can he stay ahead of the demons that torment him long enough to help those who need him?

The Shadow Doctor is a brilliantly crafted and thoroughly engaging story. This is Adrian Plass at his best! — Wm Paul Young - Author of The Shack
Adrian does what he does best, he makes you question the things that you have trusted and felt to be true about your beliefs in God, Church, Prayer, Faith...It is a breath of fresh air that moves away from the gimmicks of some modern Christianity and more towards an expressible spirituality that keeps Christ at the centre. — One Man in the Middle
With deftness and understanding the author sets the stage and introduces the characters. On turning the page I felt rather as if they had departed a perfectly dressed stage and left me staring at it as they exited to the wings. — The Preacher’s Blog
The novel offers hope in the dark night of the soul and will help many who read it. — Methodist Recorder
A beautiful, painful and deeply honest book about how hard life can be, how we think it should be and how it actually is...I read this book with an ache in my heart but I finished it with such hope for the journey. I am profoundly grateful for the sacrifice Plass obviously made in writing this book. — Understanding Alice Blog
This new title will delight followers of Adrian Plass as well as many others who like a good mystery... C. S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters comes to mind. — Together Magazine
Adrian Plass has a rare capacity to tell stories with both humour and poignancy. — The Baptist Times

How Britain (Really) Works

Stig Abell
Authors:
Stig Abell

Getting to grips with Great Britain is harder than ever. We are a nation that chose Brexit, rejects immigration but is dependent on it, is getting older but less healthy, is more demanding of public services but less willing to pay for them, is tired of intervention abroad but wants to remain a global authority. We have an over-stretched, free health service (an idea from the 1940s that may not survive the 2020s), overcrowded prisons, a military without an evident purpose, an education system the envy of none of the Western world. In short, we are a fascinating social experiment, conducted on the fly, in a world in which untried technology is completely changing how we talk, act and are expected to behave. How did we get here and where are we going?

Marianne Kavanagh

'I've come about the bodies. I know who they are.'Just before D-Day in 1944, on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, an elderly woman walks into a police station. She has information, she says, about human remains recently discovered nearby.The bodies could have stayed buried for ever - like the pain and passion that put them there. But Mary Holmes is finally ready to tell the truth. The young constable sent to take her statement is still suffering from the injuries that ended his army career. As he tries to make sense of her tale, William finds himself increasingly distracted. Mary's confession forces his own violent memories to the surface - betrayals and regrets as badly healed as his war wounds. Over six days, as pressure builds for the final push in Europe, two lives reveal their secrets. Should You Ask Me is a captivating story about people at their worst and best: raw, rich, and utterly compelling.

'Exquisitely written, true book of wonder' Geraldine BrooksIn 1948 in a small town on the land's edge, in the strange space at a war's end, a widow, a poet and a doctor each try to find their own peace, and their own new story.Anikka Lachlan has all she ever wanted--until a random act transforms her into another post-war widow, destined to raise her daughter on her own. Awash in grief, she looks for answers in the pages of her favourite books and tries to learn the most difficult lesson of all: how to go on living.A local poet, Roy McKinnon, who found poetry in the mess of war, has lost his words and his hope. His childhood friend Dr. Frank Draper also seeks to reclaim his pre-war life but is haunted by his failure to help those who needed him most--the survivors of the Nazi concentration camps.Then one day, on the mantle of her sitting room, Ani finds a poem. She knows neither where it came from, nor who its author is. But she has her suspicions. An unexpected and poignant love triangle emerges, between Ani, the poem, and the poet--whoever he may be.Written in clear, shining prose, The Railwayman's Wife explores the power of beginnings and endings--and how difficult it can be to tell them apart. It is an exploration of life, tragedy, and joy, of connection and separation, longing and acceptance, and an unadulterated celebration of love.
